In Rick Riordan's book 'The Sea of Monsters', the second in a series of children's novels loosely based on ancient Greek mythology, the magical tree that guards Camp Half-Blood has been poisoned. Perseus (Percy) Jackson, a half-blood son of Poseidon, and Annabeth, half-blood daughter of Athena, have only days to find the Golden Fleece, the one magical item, that will heal the tree before Camp Half-Blood is overrun by monsters. After the Golden Ram was sacrificed, the Golden Fleece hung on a tree in the middle of the kingdom.... It's striking that as Psyche continues her journey to really grow up, her second task requires her to gather fleece that has the power to heal.
